Is this bad????

Ok - so yesterday, I pootled off for a scan - abdominal cramps etc etc.  And lovely radiographer lady told me I had gallstones - lots of them!  Might have to have gallbladder removed etc etc.  SO - home I come and google gets to work....yep, looks likely.....simple op...keyhole....etc .....3 weeks off work.....hang on, what was that?  3 weeks off work!

And what did I think?  Ooooooooo loads of crafting time!  Is that bad?  Not the gallstones, silly - the fact that my first thought was how much crafting time I might get?

And - if they cant do it keyhole then they have to open me up....6 weeks!  Actually, I really do love my job, so would be sad to not be there for 6 weeks!  But 3 weeks sounds cool!  Well, maybe not 3 weeks - I mean, surely I can drive after 2?  And I could work from home....1 week sounds like a good amount of crafting time!

Not bad at all. I'm almost jealous....almost :) Hope everything goes well. Will say a prayer.

Hopefully they can do the minor of the two surgeries. I had it done and felt capable of much more than I was allowed. You should have a great mandatory two weeks of play time. I'll say a prayer for you.

Perfectly normal reaction :P We had to fork out £400 smackers for car repairs and MOT yesterday. My first reaction in the middle of Kwik Fit? 'ohhhh but the stash I could buy with that!'

Ohhh that does sound painful,and your remark of crafting time made me giggle!
I hope the can help you soon and hope you don't need major surgery!
I keep my fingers crossed for you!

I think it is a good way to look at a bad situation...the gallstones can't be good but atleast they can be fixed! Hope all gets fixed soon and everything goes okay!
